What does sleep have to do with your moisturizer? (Everything.)
Do you love to sleep?
I do. Always have.
Not only do I wake up feeling refreshed and so much better, I know that while I’m sleeping my body, brain, and skin are all repairing and restoring themselves.
I could talk for days about the incredible things that your body do when you’re sleeping, but today we’re talking skin.
While you’re asleep, your skin cells ramp up cell division (making new skin cells) and repair operations.
Nighttime is when your skin cells need more nutrients and when your active ingredients are the most effective
At night, your skin gets a break from the stress hormone, cortisol (cortisol levels are lowest just after you go to sleep and rise toward morning). It’s also when your skin gets a break from protecting you against environmental damage like UV rays and pollution and can use its energy to renew itself.
Melatonin and human growth hormone rise at night. They help your skin cells repair and rejuvenate.
As well as being more active at night, your skin is warmer and more permeable. This means your skin products are absorbed better.
It’s a golden opportunity to improve your skin.
And why a good night time routine and night cream are so important for healthy skin.
Delivering the right products at the right time is key to taking advantage of all the good things that happen to your skin while you sleep.
Enter…SunDown Restoring Night Cream
SunDown Restoring Night Cream’s job is to tighten and firm your skin with peptides, plump up fine lines and wrinkles, and promote a moist dewy complexion that shines from within. So you wake up in the morning looking as good (or even better) than you feel.
SunDown is a powerful cocktail of natural and botanically derived ingredients that support your skin’s health and beauty. It’s a thick cream that feels silky going on and absorbs quickly into your skin. Organic lavender oil gives you a nice light scent while it fights inflammation, free radicals, germs, and dry skin. Did I mention that lavender is relaxing?
SunDown works by delivering much needed nutrients to your skin when your skin needs them. It includes proven active ingredients like:
Peptides that help firm and tone your skin.
A small amount of glycolic and lactic acids to encourage new cell and collagen production.
Aloe and hyaluronic acid to hydrate, and plump up your skin.
Vitamin B5 (panthenol)
Vitamin B5 (panthenol) is a great ingredient in a night time moisturizer because it acts both as a humectant (it attracts water to your skin) and an emollient (helps to reduce transdermal water loss).
It helps to encourage to new cells that help your skin barrier function (and also aids in wound healing).
B5 also has an anti-inflammatory effect, especially on redness from sun damage.
CoQ 10 is a strong antioxidant. It’s well known as a supplement and it turns out that it’s really good for your skin too. Here’s why:
It energizes your cells so they can use nutrients better and help get rid of toxins.
As an antioxidant, it fights the free radicals and collagen breakdown that come from sun damage and other environmental insults. In this way, it reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
It can help even out skin tone, sooth your skin, and encourage collagen and elastin production.
More, please (actually you don’t need a lot for a good result).
Moisture boosting ingredients
You lose more moisture late in the day and at night.
SunDown is loaded with ingredients that help attract more moisture (aloe, hyaluronic acid, glycerin) and ingredients to keep the moisture in.Here are some of them:
And, of course, herbs
SunDown has a special mix of herbal extracts that are good for helping your skin fight inflammation and free radicals, adapt to stress, and promote glowing skin health. These include geranium, green tea, gotu kola, and Japanese honeysuckle.
These plant powerhouses each work in a slightly different way to brighten and tighten your skin, fight the free radicals that cause so much damage to your skin, and keep your complexion healthy and looking its best.
Here’s what some of SunDown’s fans are saying:
"I have tried literally hundreds of night creams in my life and this is,hands down, the best I have found. Not greasy, extremely moisturizing, and great consistency, I'm never using anything else! I have finally found my night cream! Highly recommend!" KM
“SunDown Night Cream is the bomb! Even my husband’s cranky skin loves it.”
How to use SunDown Restoring Night Cream:
1. Wash your face with warm (not hot!) water. Remove your makeup and the grime from the day.
2. Put a few drops of your serum (GloDrops or SnowDrops) on your hands and pat on to face, neck, chest, and hands
3. Put a nickel sized portion of SunDown on your hands. Remember, a little goes a long way. Dot the portion on your face, neck, and upper chest. If you have a little extra, put it on the backs of your hands. Pat SunDown in and let it absorb (it’s fast!).
4. If your skin is dry, you can use a facial oil like RainDrops. Pat it over your moisturized skin to seal in your skin’s moisture and all the goodies that you just delivered to your face.
